It's a problem with the environment and industry in which women invent. A lack of awareness, support, and resources has led to an INSANE gender imbalance in the number of patents and products brought to market. Only 8% of patents in the US name a female as the lead inventor and 81% of patents do not name a female at all. #InventHer is an initiative to restore the balance and create a more inclusive inventor ecosystem for all! Join us for the #InventHer kick-off breakfast on June 7th where you'll help shape the program that's going to make a difference.
We all invent! Maybe you've sketched a product idea on a napkin, or you've thought "I could create a better WHATEVER." We have ideas and then we stop. Invention is intimidating, but it doesn't have to be! #InventHer will introduce you to a network of people, places, spaces, and resources to give every inventor with an idea their fair shot. We're building community.
